ITF statement on terrorist attack in Ouagadougou

Dear comrades,

It was with deep sadness that we learnt of the terrorist attack that occurred on Sunday 13 August 2017 in Ouagadougou, at Aziz-Istanbul café and restaurant, which caused the death of 18 people, and more than twenty wounded.

The International Transport Workers' Federation (ITF) strongly condemns these barbaric and ignoble acts.

In these moments of pain and sadness, the ITF offers its compassion and solidarity to the people of Burkina Faso, and all its affiliates.

The ITF family extends its sincere condolences to the families and friends of the victims and wishes for a speedy recovery to all the wounded.

In solidarity,

Stephen Cotton

General Secretary
